Reporting in from Algarve, Portugal
The workshop’s just ended here. Its been a great time. Busy every day painting with an excellent group of people from all over. This was our longest workshop to date – and I quite enjoyed getting to know everyone. You break the ice after a few days, and can really start to learn from each other.
Here’s a few temporary pics from the field. More news on the trip soon. Update: Replaced terrible phone pics with real scans :) Here’s a longer post with all the seaside sketches.
My favorite location (so far) in this area: Prainha Beach, Algarve.
This was actually an embarrassing moment. As soon as I saw the waves I was thinking – OMG I have no idea how to paint these. What was I thinking coming here!
We all did our best learning to do it on the spot.
And that is really the main point anyway isn’t it? No matter what you read and study, you only learn to paint by practice:)
